NEXT: XY&Z10: Bonnie and Squishy! (Jan 14th)
>Ash and his friends somehow managed to fend of the attack by Team Flare. However, Bonnie can't help but worry about "it", which went missing during the confusion of the battle.... While the group searches near Terminus Cave, they accidentally end up angering a group of Toxicroak and Bunnelby ends up injured! Bonnie blames herself for it and does something unthinkable!?
POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 14 (Jan 10th)
XY&Z11: Noibat and Floette! An Encounter in the Wind!! (Jan 21st)
>A passing Floette saves Noibat, who has been poisoned by an angry Breloom.
XY&Z12: Ash and Serena! Getting One at a Dance Party!! (Jan 28th)
>While she's practicing, Serena receives an invitation to a dance party for performers.
I still don't understand what the point of that was in the game. The only purpose it seemed to serve was to make him look ridiculous, whereas with Dr. Octopus he actually used the appendages as weapons/tools.
This niggah never got back up.
Ash will die in the league of Ash-Greninja injuries
XY Family will never be the same again
This is exactly how the Kalos league will end, with everyone rising from their seat when they realize what just happened to him.
This will include Diantha, the Kalos elite four members, his friends, etc.
May is the best.
He's not going to die, at best you'll see him fainting.
Lysandre's thingy was supposed to drain energy from Xerneas/Yveltal and use it to power the ultimate weapon
>When the Legendary Pokémon awakened, it took back much of its energy--its power--that had been sent to the ultimate weapon. There's not much power left... But there IS enough to use it once...
>For me, victory is using the ultimate weapon. In order to do that, I need to reclaim the Legendary Pokémon's power and send it to that weapon once again. I'll be taking the Legendary Pokémon back now! This time, I won't lose!
Mega Mawile guy, let us not give up on our meme dreams.
XY&Z11 is proof that /padt/ has a form of meme magic.
Wasn't there a guy who spoke in broken English who correctly predicted some events that happened later on in the anime too ages ago?
Not before we meme Swanna Girl as an actual character with a sympathetic background, and a smug girl rival for goddamn Ash already.
Remember that even SB is a prophet.
It's my magnum opus prophecy.
What I want:
-Crossdressing episode for both Ash and Clemont with Serena and Bonnie none the wiser
-Japanese festival episode
-Episode where they meet an aspiring PokePerformer but is actually secretly a magical girl with her partner a magic talking Fennekin
-Iris returns with her new outfit which is now called a Dragon Princess Outfit, and has now matured and wants DA ASH.
-Hilda and her imouto, Rosa, episode where they come to Kalos to try out at the Tripokalons as research fo Pokemon Musicals. Rosa is a genki girl in the shadow of her cool onee-chan and wants to prove herself to her
-Time travel episode where
Bonnie tries to setup the fateful meeting between Serena and Satoshi
-Episode where we see the reason why Bonnie tries to keepu girls for Clemont because
their mother died and Bonnie saw Clemont crying more than her, and which she vows she will have someone take care of her brother so that she will never cry as much as her ever again
-Anniversary episode where every main girl from the past comes back and teases the fuck out of Serena
-Ash showing off all his mon to the gang. Inevitable Sasuga Ash ensues.
>-Iris returns with her new outfit which is now called a Dragon Princess Outfit, and has now matured and wants DA ASH.
Tell me about this roleplaying faggola
Why does he post the shit
>"guys, Serena will dance with Clemont and Ash with Millefeui"
>"hahahahah, yeah of course staleshit, go to therapy. also don't respond him"
>Prophecy comes true,
>ABSOLUTELY B T F O
>"I told you so guys"
>"f-ff-fuc-k y-you -s-sstaleshit, ahahahaha they're rotating partners, you are wrong like always. this wiki article and tumblr says so"
>Iris returns, day is spent recounting, shopping, Iris adoring Ash
>At night, a really heartfelt talk about the past, and how she's changed so much
>She directs one final and playful "You're such a kid" at Ash before parting ways
>As she's leaving, she turns around, eyes hidden but tears coming
>Whispers "If only we could have been little kids for a bit longer..."
Personally I'd just let him putter himself out
This could take a while
I'm concerned as to whether or not everybody is replying to themselves
Even the ones telling people to stop
Holy god what is going on
Well, I'm not replying anymore but it feels like tonight's going to get hectic.
Honestly, I can't tell what's worse, the attention whore or the actual stalebaiter that posts illogical crap that purposely ignores everything just to continue the same shit.
There's no proof of that anon. Or are you one of those who said Serena will never dance with Clemont...
Serena dancing with Clemont means she will fall in love with him starting a new romance subplot for her for XYZ.
Give it up already!! Clemont doesn't even like Serena that way!!
They will rotate partners!! Serena will never fall for Clemont even if she dances with him and they won't make another subplot!!
Alright, /vp/. Explain to me why your pokefu isn't fit as fuck for action/adrenaline.
Yeah, I think I just got my question answered.
One attention whores and the other purposely disregards everything just to continue his jerking around.
sb here, I don't care if they interchange pairs or not.
what matters me is that I was right about Clemont dancing with Serena and Millefeui with Ash.
It proves /padt/ amour fags that they can't predict everything, that sb is a prophet and that pokemon likes to bait its audience.
Omode likely decided it's time for a change since she paired Clemont/Serena together for dancing which is more romantic than battling. Serena will fall for Clemont and start a new romance subplot.
this faggola trying to defend us isn't helping a bit with his exclamation points up the arse
like calm down man you're fighting a lost cause
unless it's just stale talking to himself again in which case he should get himself checked out for that leads to insanity
Is there a list of must-watch BW episodes?
Tempted to give a shot, but pretty sure most of those 142 episodes are annoying garbage
It's him. He's even trying to use the "opinion" shield on you even though he knows he's full of it.
fucking hell this is sad
okay doesn't mean you gotta spread it around like peanut butter some people don't share your opinion either
you're in the wrong place if you're looking for support
fuck offerino you're not helping
EVERYTHING YOU SAY TO ME!!!
BRINGS ME ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE EDGE AND I'M ABOUT TO
I NEED A LITTLE ROOM BREATH!!!
BECAUSE I'M ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE EDGE I'M ABOUT TO
You do realize now he's going to try and start his whole "So do you accept that Ash/Serena will be written off..." schtick now even though you know and he knows it's bullshit, right?
>How can you say anyone with your edge if they force you to turn that edge against them?
Im surprised how when i first saw her i was neutral at her, then she started to growi on me
WAKE ME UP (WAKE ME UP INSIDE)
CAN'T WAKE UP (WAKE ME UP INSIDE)
oh my god
oh my god I've figured it out
you are talking to yourself holy shit I fucking knew it
Even if Serena and Clemont dance together, Serena's chursh on Ash will never be written off.
Serena's crush on Ash will never be written off just because you guys said so.
Seena doesn't like Clemont that way!!
He sounds like a Fox News anchor or one of those pushy moderators at a political debate
that's not what I'm saying you loopy virgin I'm saying to shut the fuck up and stop dragging us deeper and deeper into shit
>even thinking there's any merit in his post
That's why I said he's "trying". Although like the Fox News anchors, he's pretty wrong about it.
The ribbon is just a gift from a friend to another friend. You wouldn't wear something your friend gave you?
The ribbon has nothing to do with Serena being in love with Ash. Otherwise it would be brought up more.
He tried with /vp/ but the only people that bought it were people that don't watch the anime until the whole rotating partners was shown, then in /a/.
Next he'll say: "That's just QUALITY".
Another reminder that Ash has more things in common with one girl from Kanto.
>love for battles
>both from pokejapan
>both have quite a temper
>Pikachu is very fond of that girl
>She commanded the yellow rat
>"He's my burden, right?"
>both became boring and one dimensional at some point.
With Serena he only has in common that ribbon bullshit
So you have absolute proof that the episode will show stuff besides Clemont/Serena dancing and Serena not minding Ash/Millefeui dancing? Except the trailer decided to show Ash/Serena battling and not dancing so...
Yet Clemontand Serena don't have a past with each other and only met during their journeys. There will be another trailer when the episode come to air in japan. There will be more that what was already shown.
The trailer gave us all the information we need. Ash/Serena are not dancing but battling which isn't as romantic. If they show Ash/Serena battling why don't they show them dancing? Oh but Clemont/Serena dance instead...
Serena will love Ash forever. Serena never had a past with Clemont and only met at the start of their journeys. Ash even invited Serena because thatks to her he won against Viola in a rematch.
Ash is just using her for victories. He didn't want her around until she helped him win. Once he's reached the league and most likely loses early like always, he'll ditch her like he's ditched the others when they no longer grant him victory in battle.
>Not considering she doesn't feel nothing for anyone.
>So, the only girl who has more things in common with Ash and has feelings for him is Misty.
>forgetting that being a bad cooker is only played for laughs.
>And forgetting the most important thing: Tsundere girls (almost) always win over the sweet waifu, the platonic BFF or the genki ditz in the MCbowl.
20th anniversary will be interesting indeed.
>And a final reminder: In Japan, the most popular pairing types are "Hotblooded idiot x Tsundere", "Nerd x Fashion" & "Platonic BFF".
>I stopped watching anime in the late 90s
Let's make a bet on this. If there are more trailers by the time the dancing episode is released in full, one of us will have to admit they were wrong.
Care to join the bet good sir?
And how about you? you willing to accpet hte bet?
Did you forget Oreimo?? That fuckin siscon romantic comedy where the annoying tsundere little sister won da Kyosuke over Manami, Ayase and Kuroneko??
>btw I'm reading Nisekoi and it seems the tsundere girl is winning there.
There's so much incorrect stuff in this post I'm feeling like I'm being baited. Please tell me I'm being baited.
I have. I should have known I was being baited.
Of course he isn't, despite the rampant shitposting and meming of niggers within and without this thread, Ash's character in XYZ is the proper natural progression of his skill and character after coming up against hundreds of skill trainers. Hell, if it was up to me he should've fucking obliterated every gym leader other than Korrina with her Mega Lucario.
But no, he still loses, gets surprised by other people's strategies, and even has doubts about his own tactics like the rhythm thing, but him overcoming these challenges are consistent with his characterization, and I'm glad only Ash's Strongest Rival is allowed to beat him at this point.
It's in one of the Lumiose Tower's office buildings. They are renting it, but is also the entrance to their secret base and the Ultimate Weapon
which is the Lumiose Tower itself.
We gotta get Deliah first to appear before that happens. ;_;
Take the bet of if they show more trailers than the one already shown by the time the dancing episode is uploaded by the internet with subs, one of us will admit we were wrong. Do you accept this bet?
If anything, I can see us getting ACTION LOLI instead.
I'm sure we'll get action waifu again, though. Or a CoTD might take up the mantle, there was that one girl in the Jirachi episode in BW who managed to launch herself 80 feet into the air with a busted ankle onto TR's balloon.
More like action onii-chan because Ash took Clemont's fucking place in the previous one.
wow this is some severe autism
literally playground bully material/10
The episode has no fucking right to be so fucking good for a BW episode.
also I should point out
I'm not a chicken, you're a turkey
Just because James is with Millefeui doesn't mean he dances with her, which means the same for Ash and Serena.
Let's this started, the last grill of BW's Baka Trio.
For what purpose?
They should've de-aged this girl so she wouldn't look so much of a goddamn baka.
she is waving at us
is she looking at me
>dat legend badge shape at the end
>it's an "Ash loses his badges" episode
>pulling this shit when he only has one badge
Oh, god, I hope we don't have this shit in XY. These are one of the most infuriating episodes ever.
>things women will never understand
>pretty much the kiddiest of the bunch right now
>causes Ash trouble, doesn't understand the shit he went through for his badge, and prevents him from solving it
>Iris has yet to call her a kid
This triggers me
Can't help but make a stitch of her
>yfw the two of them become super big heads again like in the episode where they found Clemont was a gym leader
>started out as a trainer late
>already has a fucking pignite, later Ash gets a pignite and it remains that way for the rest of the fucking season
>everyone else has a goddamn Unova starter that has fully evolved by the end of the season
You, see, this is why Ash shouldn't get all the starters, but this one is worse because everybody else gets their own Unova starter instead of other region's starters. Fucking glad XYZ has the three amigos get Kanto starters instead.
>has to stomp around announcing he's gonna flame charge before it could flame charge
This is why Bravest Ballerina a best.
Yeah, but in a later episode, Ash's badge case have the the shapes of silhouettes disappear and instead has vague indents on them, conveniently allowing Roxie's badge to fit in there instead of the Legend Badge.
XYZ may have cute grills and interesting background characters, but BW has an usual abundance of quirky dumb girls.
Oh, for fuck's sakes.
Jesus fucking Christ this chick.
It was even worse in the dub. I'm sorry.
>abundance of quirky dumb girls
I'm glad those girls stayed in BW, girls should be beautiful, being quirky is a bad trait. But there is one crazy girl in generation 6, fortunately she didn't appear in the anime: Courtney
What an idiot. What's worse is she won't get her comeuppance, unlike that purple headed moron.
No wonder Ash lost to Cameron, he must've been slowly going insane by the amount of idiots that surrounded him.
If BW was a nightmare for us, what was it like for Ash?
She is also aware of the 4th wall. Can no one stop this girl?
All they did was disagreeing on short hair being related to feminism, there were still many that hated short hair in general.
That's right, it's gym time, can't be here all day.
Well, this is surprising.
Damn, Bianca has a big
I'm gonna need a wemb of this.
>this niggah has two badges
Well, this is really pissing me off. They're really want to make Ash out as a complete fool this season.
This episode is making me go crazy.
>have been ready to go since the beginning despite both Oshawott and Bianca's unceasing interruptions
>only now realizes he can use Pikachu
Oh, wow, what a hilarious turn of events!
Man, they really bullied that shit out of Ash this season.
>plot of the episode has already climaxed but we still have 5 minutes left, what do?
>just throw in a battle
Ash Ketchum is aro-ace, pass it on
Quads confirm that shipping Ash with anyone, and I mean ANYBODY AT ALL, is erasure of aromantic and asexual people. Off by one confirms that Geekchic is ded despite Ash being aro-ace
>orders Ash and his pokemon around for the entire episode
>has the audacity to tell Ash which Pokemon to use
>before that Ash has to wonder what Pokemon to use on a fire type
Please fucking kill me.
Here's something will never see again.
I'm glad it's over.
That episode was bad. Really bad.
>Ash literally does nothing wrong, as he is only forced to used the faculties that he has that has now been taken away from him, and is forced to contend against a reality that is actively trying to screw him over and drive him crazy
awa bless us. Now there's only two more TF girls to go, now if only he does another Malva pic.
That makes her fun, she is punished for her meanness and stupidity.
I don't think she's actually mean, though, just arrogant and proud. She barely knows what she is doing, so she's very defensive when anyone calls to question her abilities that she's had to work hard to gain by herself. She really wants someone to help her learn things but she won't admit it
Most said really short hair was gay but Serena's hair isn't a feminist haircut. They weren't talking about which hair was better for Serena.
Do you want to have sex with this 10 year old french girl, /vp/?
Shitposters are likely dubfags.
Geekchic shippers are those who want Satoshi with Hikari or Haruka or Iris or Kasumi lol.
How you know a girl is in love,check it out when you get chance.
Serena is in LOVE with Satoshi,It's not a normal girl crush.
She won't lose her feelings and switch to Citron...
Seriously if you are watching a japanese show,at least understand the difference between love and a crush....
Does anyone have the dub version of this scene?
So does Alain have a leitmotif? He is after all referred to as Ash's Strongest Rival, was't he? He should have at least have one. It's only proper.

>Froakie can do a Rasengan looking move
>Charizard X gets an attack that coats its fist in electricity out of nowhere for the fight
They're doing it on purpose aren't they.
Korrina returning when?
I want tsundere serena to come back
>mfw becoming new Fairy-type Dragon Buster
>mfw Iris develops an aversion to "creepy fairies"
She never left you are only on the wrong side of the mirror
Adamant, will you eventually do a full translation of XY&Z? Right now only the translation of the tv version is up next to the full transcribed Japanese version and it looks a little weird.
Is best Jessie Hair down, Hair up or bun hair Jessie?
None of those, wet hair Jessie is the best.
Do you think the lemon siblings are gonna learn about their father's crazy antics in a future episode or they will never know about it?
He will reveal himself at some point, when Serena knows how awesome their dad is she wants Clemont even more.
